The FROG Princess Fashions Sweet Tea Eyelet Machine Embroidery designs are digitized to fit the puffed or butterfly sleeves, the neck ruffle, and the hem ruffles of the Frog Princess Fashions Sweet Tea Dress sewing pattern. What could be sweeter than that? Well, maybe a tall, cool glass of freshly-made iced “sweet tea,” perhaps?
The Sweet Tea Dress requires a paper pattern for all of the pattern pieces and is available separately exclusively from Frog Princess Fashions via Pixie Faire. However, the two sleeve variations and the neck and hem ruffle pattern pieces will stitch out in the hoop of your embroidery machine for perfect placement of the ME eyelet designs. No more guesswork!
In addition, if you have an embroidery machine with a mega hoop, multi-hoop or endless hoop option, you can combine and stitch the pieces in a longer strip instead of piecing several of them together, as with a smaller hoop. If you only have a 6”x10” hoop, don’t worry! Stitching the pieces together doesn’t take long, and once the dress is finished, the seams don’t show, either!
What’s more, with these exclusive ME designs you can customize your eyelet in all sorts of colors. I stitched out hot pink on navy, dark brown on blush pink, and black on chambray blue. Of course, the traditional white was my first try, and it was lovely, too!
